I recently had the pleasure of trying out the Kinklab Spandex Hood with Built-in Blindfold. I brought it with me to San Francisco as part of my sub kit and tried it out as a part of my first dungeon experience.
I’m a bit claustrophobic and wasn’t sure if I’d like having my face covered so thoroughly, but I love this hood, it’s comfortable and easy to breath through. I’ve always imagined hoods being loose, bag-like cloth draped over the head. This hood is form fitting, with eye-socket pads for extra blindness. It’s light-weight, breathable and it also didn’t cause me to overheat.
When Roxy slipped this hood over my head during our dungeon adventure, not only did it cut off my vision, it caused a heightening of my other senses. That increased my awareness in interesting ways and made me even more sensitive to what she was doing to me. Even though I wouldn’t to spend all my time with the hood on, I love having it as an option, as a way to enhance the experience.
And.. yes, of course I looked that good with the hood on 😉
Constructed of light-weight, breathable spandex in fashionable black.
Machine washable (but hang it up to dry for maximum use)
Sells for $48 at TabuToys
Cuts off all vision thanks to the built-in eye-pads, but lets oxygen flow freely.
Now, if it came with the slave pictured above, I’d gladly pay more…
The Kinklab Spandex Hood with Built-in Blindfold gets my highest rating of 5 boots. It meets my criteria of being relatively inexpensive, of high quality and of doing its job very well. If you want to experiment with some sensory deprivation on your own, or with a partner, I highly recommend this hood.
